as he came into the general election cycle that he was glad to have to deal with. i think for obama, there were also three challenges. one parallel to mitt romney rallying his face, he had to rally the liberal base as well. there were concerns that liberals were a little disenchanted or let down by the progress or lack of progress they thought had been made over his first term and whether the liberals were back had enthusiastically. he had to mobilize key groups that helped him in 2008 but are not necessarily traditionally strong turnout sekhmet, for too early young voters and minority voters. i think most people thought and we certainly thought getting that level of engagement, if not equal to 2008, at least more than the historical norm would be critical to him. a third one is the economy. and, it will some extent be held accountable for economic circles the of this. he was facing continued on of one of levels nationwide and a lot of public discouragement about the improvement of the economy. the hurdle for him was trying to not get taken down by that problem as previous incumbent

not think we will for a long time. both parties are to blame. i think president obama has been prepared to go over the cliff for a long time. he started the negotiations putting a lot of red lines down and demanding more. it is created by both the democrats and republicans. i think we will maybe get a small deal, but the really big can will be kicked down the road to further impoverished american citizens, working people, to finance big and ever intrusive government. the only answer, in my opinion, is to have strict term minutes for u.s. politicians. it used to be that politics was a vocation. now it has turned into a career. they are most interested in getting reelected so they continue their career. they forget the nation. it is very apparent in our country. in america, it has gone on for a long time and impoverishing americans. it is a great shame. dennis: it doesn't ring a whole new meaning. >> you are absolutely right. of course, the two-party, plus their cotton socks, focused on tax increases. it is a side issue, really. they will do something for the nation above themselves. just

it as if that were the case. >> though q1 historically has shown a down turn for all economic activity? >> sure. >> zach, i appreciate your time. >> thank you. >> at the president's first press conference after his reelection, mr. obama reminded americans that america had chosen him and his agenda over them. but republican senators essentially blocked susan right before she was ever nominated as secretary of state. now be prominent republicans are signaling troubling ahead for a fellow republicans, chuck hagel of nebraska if the president nominates him as the next defense sek. >> i don't think he's going to get me republican i like. but his positions i didn't frankly know all of them are really out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it lab challenging nomination but the hearings will matter. >> well, the president is not getting much help from democrats either. here's senator chuck schumer answering whether he would support senator hagel's nomination. take a listen. >> i'd have to study his record. i'm not going to comment until the president makes a nomination. >>
